Adventure games to launch at Bolingbroke Castle
Escape Games Company is launching the new game concept at Bolingbroke Castle.
The games, run in association with English Heritage, will see participants collaborate together in small groups to solve puzzles and crack clues inspired by the compelling heritage of the site. Actors in full costume will bring the games to life, engaging and interacting with players and further enhancing the experience.
COVID-safety will be paramount, with all activities outside and all clues and props cleaned and sanitised after every game. The sizes of groups and the number of households allowed to mix will also be adhered to depending on Covid restrictions.
Last summer, The Escape Games Company ran a successful pilot at Berkhamsted Castle, an English Heritage site in Hertfordshire where more than 95% of players said they would recommend the experience.
The games in Lincolnshire (and other new games being operated by The Escape Games Company) will be delivered under their ‘Adventure Out! Games’ brand, which focuses on outdoor, escape style themed games in amazing sites around England.
The games are expected to appeal to a broad audience including families and friends of all ages, along with school groups and those looking for corporate team building activities.
Owner and founder Ian Cox said: “We are really excited to launch our games at this amazing heritage site in Lincolnshire. Our objective is to help bring this magnificent location to life with fun, energising games founded in fact and inspired by the past.”
As every game is outside, there is also a strong emphasis on wellbeing. “After months of lockdown and inordinate amounts of time spent in front of screens, we wanted to provide activities that support people’s physical and mental health,” Cox continued. “Our problem-solving games will bring the feel-good factor and plenty of active fun and excitement in amazing, heritage locations.”
Adventure Out! Games are around one hour in duration and can be booked in advance at www.adventureoutgames.co.uk with games in Lincolnshire launching on 15 April with a money back guarantee should COVID restrictions change. Prices start at £10 per person. Games will be available on weekdays, at weekends and throughout the school holidays.
